AS CHASTISEMENT Continued from Page One the mayor and his police commissioners ! for making inspections of the district. ! one of which i pronounced an orgy. The grand jury report ojfonornied the I mayor nnd 'his officials of craft, but ' warned Ihcm Uiat a reopening of the district would merit severe i rent merit, i But the itntiigonisls of tho mayor nad 1 not been idle ami they procured an unofficial minoritv report from six 1 memhers of the grand jury (its total i membership is ninetocn) which declared that the political syndicate that con- trolled the restricted district was nc j tuallv formed in the nmyor's otOce. The "minoritv report was regarded as I the oxpressiou of the defendants in the libol suits, who had sought by every means to procure tho indictment of tho officials. It is now their principal weapon in the recall fighk But beforo the grand jury reported, i the mayor had named Edward Kern to succeed" Edwards on the board of pub- , lie works. Knowing the attitude of the grand jurors, the antagonists of Harper declared thnt the appointment of a man who had voted for n gift of the fran- chiso of the bed of the Los Augolcs river from the city to the sea to an ( unknown applicant, dincuisfd as tho Western Pacific, was justification for ; tho recall. The declaration was taken up bv tho Herald, a Democratic morn nig paper opposed to Harper, and the recall demanded. The .Municipal league, a nonpartisan orcanizntion, and the City club, another of the snmo char acter, responded and fathered the re call. Invitations were sent, out for a special, meeting and a perceninu ol those invited responded. It was de cided that tho mayor must be recalled. Candidate Is Namod. Another meeting was cnlled (by ex clusive invitation) to name a candi date. W. D. Stephens, tho strongest personality in public life in Los Ange les, was unincd. but declined. Then it became a Japhet's search for n father. At tho Inst minute almost tho recall set throw tho choice into a commit! oo of fifteen, which selected George Alex ander, just out as supervisor, as the only one who would take the nomina tion. Now the people arc asked to vote on this qucstiou: "Shall Mayor Harper be put out, of office and Alexander put ini'' Thnt is what the recall means. It is tho club over public officials to chastise them for official dereliction. It mnv be used whenever 25 per cent of tho" voters at tho last municipal elec tion pctitiou for its exorcise. This is how that provision worked horor Tho last municipal election was in 1006, and 25 per cent of its vote is 74S7; but there aro now 65,000 reg istered voters iu tho city, so that tho actual per ceut of tho total vole, re quired is only 12 per cent. The peti tion was obtained in two weeks and in sured the election. There aro only two candidates, the Socialist candidate hav ing been illegally nominated and ex cluded from the ballot. But the real question before tho poo plo is whether tho difference in opiuiou as to a public official's acts is suf ficient cause for recall. All through his administration Harper has boon tho point of attack by his political adver saries. His every act has met accusa tion as to motive. The recall was never heard of until Woolwino started his anti-vico crusado and the liberals threntonod to recall his RUporior, City Attornev Hewitt. This wnH throttled by tho "mayor, whom tho liberals sup port. Then tho libol suits woro begun and the project to recall Harper fol lowed, based on tho charge that his appointment of Kern was pari of a scheme to loot the aqueduct funds. But the rccallists made no attempt to recall tho citj' couucil, whoso mem bers voted unanimously to confirm Keru's appointment. Without such con firmation, and tho council has several nonpartisan members, the- appointment could never have beon made. Tho coun cil reallv controls all the mayor's ap pointments, and. while responsibility may originate with him, it must bo as sumed in tho end by tho council. But no recall of any of its members has over boon suggested. When tho recall was first used in the. Sixth ward if was because Councilman Davenport had-offended, tho labor in terests by his voto in giving the. city printing to tho Times at a price higher than that bid by tho Express and tho Journal. A collusive deal between tho Express and Journal was disclosed. Tho Times is non-union and the Sixth ward is tho strong union labor field and the hoi -bed of socialism. Davenport was the most vulnerable, politically, of all tho conncihnon and his ward offered the one opportunity to invokn tho re call. Jl was the firt uso of that prin ciple iu America and wns watched with interest. The result was tbo election of Dr. A. D. Houghton over Davenport, a consequent lawsuit to determine his right to succeed, which sustained tho right, but held that Davenport should receive his salary. Houghton as a ' councilman was a" farce and brought public ridicule on the recall. Even tho Sixth ward repudiated him aud drove him out of political life. If tho time hadu't been so short he, too, might have 1 beon recalled. Ho satisfied nobody and left an odious record. What the people of Los Angeles are thinking of now is whether a public official, elected by tho people, should bo made a defendant in the court of public opinion because those who do not like his political acts or who demand tho indorsement of their own schomes desire it. Is it right, thev are ask ing, that a public official must bo I kicked like a football between rival political factions to displease nny ono of which may bring on the recall and put him to the expense of another cam paign? What man of sound judgment; and integrity will lake public office under such circumsctancoFj or will auv i one? Tho recallj as a principle, is on trial. The derelictions of Harper are not the pa rarnouut .issue. The voters arc to pass on the value of the recall, per ho, and, there is a business men's or ganization, largely Republican and auti Hnrper, that is in exist uuce solely to ! defeat t.hcr movement, as a principle, j Harper's candidacy is a mere incident to them, and their support of him is not becanso they believe ho did every thing right, but because they believe his errors, if such they wero! were of, judgment, and that a mayor should have the right to appoint whom he pleases to office and be answerable for them. With the recall oligarchy, it is a theory that ho who would stnv in of fice, must name the men "we" want; and what "we" ask. If they succeed in tho recall, how many pettv oli garchies will form ami whero 'will a public official be "al?" How It May Work. Sonic Salt Lako City official mav some be drafted to fill an office hero if the recall principle is estab lished, for if Harper is driven from office, nis successor will not got com fortably seated in the chair" until an attempt will be made to recall him.

Stray Dogs Overrun the Streets; Chief of PoJice Barlow's Remedy "Within the past fow .weeks there havo been many complaints received by me regarding so many unlicensed dogs running about tho city and I think it is high time that something wns dono to rid the city of them." says Chief of Police Barlow. Tn speaking about getting the stray doga put away, Chief Barlow said: "I bolicvo there are moro unlicensed dogs about tho streets of Salt Lake than ever before. Nearlj every day, and sometimes oft Oner, wo are receiving reports of small children and even grown people being attacked and bit Ion by stray dogs. I think that the city should tako immediate steps to have tho dogs captured aud killed in the most humane manner possible. "At this time tho dogs do not do much damage, but when summer comes and citizens itltonipt to havo nice lawns and flower beds tho dogs run over them and do no end of damage. I remeinbor at one time in, this city a bounty of 50 cents was paid for each dog captured and killed, nnd I tell you they disappeared like dow before the sun. Then all a person had to do to receive pay for killing a dog was to present tho animal's oars at tho city treasure's office. At Ogden a bounty was paid for tho presentation of a dog s tail and the story is told thnt two men, ono in Salt Lake and one in Ogdon, both in the dog-catching business, would exchange the oars nnd tails of the dogs captured and thus get a doublo price. Thoro must bo hundreds of stray dogs in this city. If tho city should offer a bounty for dogs, T "think, it would bo but a short whilo till the city would bo wholly rid of thom. "Conditions "havo got so bad thnt ownors of licensed dogs do not put col lars on them. Another bad feature about having so many stray dogs about is thnt thoy spread disoase. Ouo night a dog w'ill" follow a man home and go iulo his housu, whore, porhnps, thoro is some member of tho family suffering from a contagious disoase. The next day the animal loaves and that very I night will follow some other citizen to his home to bo taken in out of sym I pathy from tho cold night air. Tho I animal brings tho disoase in ita fur ! from the first, house to the second, and then it is wondered how the discaso spread. "There is no ono thnt likes a dog or is better to thom than I, but for tho safoty of tho general public I be lieve rigid laws should bo made." i Tim chief feels that tho proper au- thoritios should tako up the matter, but if they don;t he will do so. In many eastern cities police officers aro I instructed to capture all dogs running about the streets without collars nnd tako them to police headquarters, whoro they aro kept the time required by law for the owner to put in a claim and then killed.

You ! PARIS, Feb. 2S. Mme. .Tulielt Bacon, a young Frouch woman, pre dicted tho Messina catastrophe in 1907, and her prediction was published in IflOS, scvcrnl weeks before tho earth quake. Mine. Bacon now predicts a catae thophe in a Paris theater. She makes no secret of the name of the theater, but, for obvious reasons, it is not dis closed. Mmo. Bacon is a pretty littlo woman, with fair hair nnd blue eyes, and has nothing of the mystic in hci appearance. "I see visions," she said quite simply.

Thoir poverU and squalor are tbo result of drink. What docs tho Bible sav? 'Drunkenness and gluttony shall bring a man in povertv, nnd slothfulness shall make him naked.' If all tho public houses wero closed tonight the problem of unemployment would bo solved. Poverty itselr would bo cured. Tho drunkard robs the butcher because .he cannot afford to buy his moat. Ho robs the tailor because through drink ho goes in rags, no robs tho baker because he buys beer icstead of bread, "What is to bo done? I tell you there must be prohibition.

Uo spoke of tho defects in the con struction of buildings iu Messiua, which after au earthquake were built worse than before. In this connection ho road extracts from a report on the earthquake of Diana Marina, north Italy, the destruction of which was ow ing to defects in tho construction of the town. Then, quoting Goethe, whom he described aa not only a great poet, but likewise a scientist, he related that Goethe, contemplating, in 1787, tho ruins of Messina, wrote pages to bo remembered, reprobating be mode of building which had rendered the dis aster more destructive. There is little reason to hope that the old and bad method of building will bo' changed now. SEA TRAGEDY MYSTERY APPARENTLY SOLVED ALGIERS, Fob. 2S.
